Stephen Hemsley, Executive Chairman, commented:

“I am pleased to be reporting our maiden interim results following the Group’s successful IPO in which we raised £2.9m net and were well supported by institutional and retail shareholders, the management team, employees and franchisees.

A key objective set out at the time of the IPO was to expand the Group through targeted acquisitions of high quality franchise businesses and we are actively reviewing a number of opportunities, leaving us hopeful that we will be able to announce our first transaction shortly.

The Company’s two main brands, Chips Away and Ovenclean, continue to trade well, giving us confidence in the full year outcome.

With our highly experienced management team and Board, we have a firm foundation for continuing to build on our success to date.”
